Well it looks like I'm going to be "babysitting" my 12 year old nephew for the next 2-3 weeks while my mom is at work. This isn't a big deal cause he's old enough to entertain himself. He's got his own laptop and his DS, he's not at that mouthing back stage yet, my mom sends him loaded down with snacks (that he doesn't eat, but tempt me instead), and she pays me (which I tell her not to, but she insists cause I'm not working and that's how moms are). I'm just a little worried that it's going to interfere with my exercise routines. Today I did get in some cardio because we went swimming, but HE was rushing ME to leave!! LOL I felt like the child saying "No, I need to swim some more!"
I can't do my workouts in the morning cause he gets here around 7am, which is way earlier than I usually wake up!! I will just have to find a way to squeeze them in while he's here. He's old enough that I can explain to him that I have to work out and if we're swimming, he has to wait until I'm done. I just feel bad that he's going to be bored. He's from NB so he doesn't have any friends here in SA to play with. Oh, well...we'll just have to figure out a way to make it work!
On a side note I did get some cardio in today swimming, but I had to guesstimate how many calories I burned cause I was to scared to wear my HRM in the water, even though it is supposed to be waterproof. If we go swimming tomorrow, I'll just have to chance it. Maybe.
